TERMS OF TRADING
We reserve the right to make changes to the
availability, content, tuition fees, set books
or any other details of any course at any time.
The mention of a course on this website is not a
guarantee of availability. If we receive a
payment and the course is not available, a full
refund will be made.
We reserve the right to refuse admission to any
course without giving a reason.
UKCHT/Kadmon courses are presented for educational
purposes only. They are not substitutes for
psychological or medical care, counselling or
psychotherapy. Please consult your medical
doctor if you have a medical problem. If you
require counselling or psychotherapy, please
consult a qualified practitioner.
Students are responsible for their own
well-being. UKCHT/Kadmon Academy is not
responsible for the outcome of the use of any
technique or material taught in any course.
In compliance with the EU Distance Selling Directive and
Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000
and subsequent applicable regulations.
This law and the rights detailed below apply to all transactions
within the UK for customers in the UK and the EU, where the
customer does not meet the seller in person.
Sales from one
business to another are not controlled by these regulations. If
you are a self-employed professional, and you have enrolled on
one of our courses for professional development purposes, we
interpret that to be a business-to-business transaction.
The law allows you a
14-day "cooling off" period. During that
time you have the right to cancel your contract and to obtain a
full refund. The
days will begin from the time you receive
our confirmation of your enrolment. During that time you may
cancel without a reason. Let us know by the quickest means:
email, fax, telephone (we will return the call if you reach our
voicemail and leave your number - but landlines only please, no
mobiles.) Please also confirm your request by letter sent by
regular mail to our postal address in London. If you claim a
refund within the 7-day "cooling off" period we will let you
have that refund within 30 days.
Any refunds of moneys paid by credit/debit card will be refunded
to the same card. Paypal payments will be refunded via
Paypal. Non-card payments will be refunded by the most
convenient means at our discretion - normally by cheque.
However, the regulations allow that if the order is for
specially personalised goods, the right to cancel a purchase
does not apply. If, for example, we have arranged an
award comprising a personalised certificate, or you are ordering
a personalised or made to order product the "cooling off"
period will not apply.
If you are outside the UK or EU the Distance Selling Regulations
do not apply and there is no statutory requirement for a refund. Please ensure you are committed to the
course before you enrol.
CANCELLATIONS OR INTERRUPTIONS AFTER THE COOLING OFF PERIOD
After the "cooling off" period, our services (provision of course materials
and tutorial support) will be available for you during your
registration period and for any longer period that we have
agreed. If you do not exercise your right to use those services,
then that does not entitle you to a refund. If you need to
suspend your studies for any reason, it is your responsibility
to let us know as soon as possible, and we will give you any
appropriate advice. At our discretion, we can decide to
lengthen the registration period for a specified time without
from April 2013 we are no longer offering modular payment plans.

specific academic requirements are met and all fees due have

reasons) with their Academic Advisor as soon as possible. In
special circumstances students will be allowed reasonable extra
TIMESCALES (for Academic Advisors)
We will make every effort to mark assignments within 30 days but
at very busy times of year or holiday periods, it might not be
possible to adhere to this goal in every case. We guarantee
that, if significant delays occur that in our opinion prevent a
student from completing during the period of registration, we
will extend that period of registration for at least 6 months
without further charge.
FAILING A COURSE
A student who fails a course unit may re-take it up to two
further times. However, as mentioned above, if the period of
registration has run out, additional fees could be required.
Failure is not a reason for extending the period of registration
without further fees.
BOUNCED CHEQUES AND
OTHER FAILED PAYMENTS
It is the student's
responsibility to ensure that there are sufficient funds in the
account before issuing a cheque or other payment.
If necessary please verify the balance by checking with
your bank. A fee of £40 will be charged to cover costs and
administration time in the event of a payment being dishonoured.
